Make the most of our Services

Please read notices posted inside the surgery and below.

Make sure you:

...are familiar with the opening times of the surgery

...find out how to arrange home visits, repeat prescriptions and urgent appointments.

  • You may not always need to see a doctor, ask what services the nurse can provide.
  • Take a list of questions with you when you see your doctor or nurse and ask appropriately to your doctor or nurse.
  • Take a friend or relative with you if necessary.
  • Interpretation services are available.
  • Tell the receptionist if you require more time to speak to the doctor so they can arrange a longer, double appointment.
  • Think twice before making an appointment - do you really need to see a doctor? Have you tried simple home treatments first?


People aged over 75 are invited to participate in an annual check-up facility. Visits may be organised for those unable to travel.

We also offer a three yearly check-up for adults aged under 75 either with the doctor or the practice nurse.


If you wish to have a chaperone present at the time of consultation, please ask at the reception desk or with the doctor in consultation.

Mobile Phone Policy

We operate a strict no mobile phone policy - please turn off mobile phones before entering building.
